I appreciate your article. On Sundays I had a routine of doing church, having lunch, then head for my favorite thrift store. Because of other things I needed to do I haven't been for at least 2 months. I probably won't return because your article made me realize the possibilities, and I truly don't "need" anything. Thanks again. Keep your ideas coming, enjoy Bright side.

Who ever wrote this has no idea of the value of vintage and antique items. Shoes can be disinfected. If these items were so dangerous, thrift stores wouldn't sell them. This article was written with little to no research or factual reference.

I don't know if it's Bucks County, or the state of PA clothing, pillows, etc must be sanitized

Had no problems, health etc buying shoes/sneakers as the majority of them I buy are new or use sanitizing wipes for the inside.....

I'll never stop shopping at thrift stores as the majority of my home is filled with items from the thrift store.

What a truely crappy article. My home is pretty much all from the op shop (we call them that here in Australia) I've lived like this for years, since I moved out of my family home.

Everything can be cleaned and re-used, and obviously you'd check condition of items before purchasing.... A good Thrift shop will not sell old crappy garments.

What a disapointing article at a time we all should be re-using and recycling :(
